HP launches open ecosystem

HP has announced its enterprise-class software-defined networking (SDN) open ecosystem with the HP SDN Developer Kit (SDK) and the HP SDN App Store, creating new business opportunities for partners, and providing a simple way for customers to purchase and deploy network services.

In order to prepare IT professionals to navigate the changes in skill sets needed to handle the way SDN solutions are changing how networks are built, programmed and managed, HP is also introducing an SDN Learning Journey curriculum (available now) and an SDN Certification (available in Dec.), as part of the HP ExpertOne program. Through the HP SDN Certification IT architects, managers and application developers are assured they meet HP’s strict performance standards for enterprise-grade SDN deployments.
